A young Oakland A's fan who was handed a foul ball during Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers shocked nearby fans, including his family, when he immediately throws it back onto the field.
It happened in the top of the eighth inning when Tigers batter Victor Martinez hit a foul ball into the stands behind home plate. A nearby fan was nice enough to hand the fan to the boy's father to give to him, which he did. However, the boy clearly didn't understand that he was supposed to keep the ball, as he seemed convinced that he did the right thing by throwing the ball back.
We've seen too many cases of kids tossing baseballs away, and it's a darn shame. Parents who take their kids to MLB games need to explain to their kids that if they get a baseball, they should keep it.
